Caption: This strange landscape is the result of different types of street lights from several small towns and villages diffusing through fog. This view was taken from Colli Euganei near Padua, Italy. The colour temperature of different types of public lighting causes the fog to glow in a variety of different colours. The yellow areas are associated with ordinary filament lighting, the red areas with sodium vapour lights and the blue ones with mercury vapour lights. The picture is also an illustration of the high levels of light pollution reached in highly developed farmland areas.
